The Kowalski family wanted to capture Chase’s competitive spirit and vitality in creating a charity in his honor with a focus on health and wellness for children and their families. CMAK (Chase Michael Anthony Kowalski) Sandy Hook Memorial Foundation has pursued programs and initiatives that encourage personal improvement, healthy lifestyles and strong family and communities. CMAK has targeted three programs inspired by Chase and supported by the Kowalski family; namely, Race4Chase Kid’s Triathlon Program, Chase’s Place and CMAK Preschool Grant Program. Through these programs, CMAK will focus its energies in an effort to fulfill its mission .
Although these three programs will be CMAK’s focus, the foundation will also pursue its mission through the inspiring acts of the Race4Chase community and through each and every activity, event or engagement in which we participate.
